Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, Gai Yang Takrai

Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, Gai Yang Takrai

This is a simple recipe using just a few ingredients that we made at home using an electric griddle. It can be made in a skillet or in a barbecue, it really doesn't matter. This recipe came to us from an office worker in Thailand who enjoys making satay.

Satay is, of course, not just popular in Thailand but even more so in Thai restaurants around the world. In addition to this recipe, you might get interested in these:

Method for Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, Gai Yang Takrai

Soak your skewers in water for at least one hour to help prevent them from burning while cooking. Finely chop the fresh lemongrass, and set aside 4 tablespoons. In a mortar and pestle, pound together the garlic, coriander seed, and Thai pepper powder until smooth. You will need to use 1 teaspoon of that for this recipe.

In a mixing bowl, combine chicken, spice paste, and chopped lemongrass. Add soy sauce, sugar and vegetable oil. Mix well, then cover with plastic wrap & refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Thread marinated chicken onto skewers. Grill for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until done. Served withsticky rice, and sweet chilli sauce, this is a perfect meal. Enjoy!
